MOSCOW CIRCUS

Bianca Dye on circus life, Wollongong and turning 40

The day she ran off to join the circus Bianca Dye sat in a motel room gluing sequins to every centimetre of a vest and to the bottom of a very short skirt. A black top hat completed the ensemble.
Having flown from Melbourne to Coffs Harbour for the audition and having landed the job, she quickly needed a costume fit for a ringmaster.
The next six months would be an adventure of a lifetime. She would turn 21 on the road, win over some gruff and burly circus masters and live the life of a Russian gypsy as she travelled Australia with the famous Moscow Circus.

 
The co-host of the i98FM breakfast program turns 40 this month - a milestone that's made even more special by the fact that the same circus that she ran away with when she was 20 rolled into town this week.
"It's so ironic that they're here when I'm turning 40," says Dye. "I totally feel like it's a coming of age. So much has happened in the last 19 years."
Dye, a self-confessed rock chick and media personality, who once interviewed Madonna and Pink and defeated 2UE king John Laws in the fiercely fought radio ratings wars as the morning host of NOVA FM, now lives a more settled life in Wollongong - with long walks around Belmore Basin and Bikram Yoga regular activities.
